Due to our strict silk pants-only policy, the PSP Go (and, really, any other handheld) has been a hard sell — sure, the $250 asking price isn’t helping, but that may be changing in the near future. A dutiful tipster sent us the above image from his AAFES-based store of employment, indicating a $50 North American price drop to $200 for the digital-only handheld. Oddly, Sony has kept mum on the possibility, not even offering a “We don’t comment on rumor and speculation” to our repeated attempts at contact.

Our friends in other retailers have yet to uncover any news of the price drop, but Sony’s silence gives us the impression something’s up. Perhaps you have something to share? Don’t hesitate to drop us a line!

I think it is about time for this, $250 is much to steep for an old handheld that does not support a physical format. Digital Distribution may be the future, but the world is not quite ready yet. Though this is still a rumor so do not take it to heart!

Though the good news is that Amazon is currently selling the PSP Go for $199.00 anyway.

How long did I ask advent to become a news poster? lol, nice article though! $200 seems a fair price, especially if they’re trying to “stay competitive” with Nintendo. Apparently the 3DS will launch at $300 USD, so maybe this will help them stay in the game a bit longer, who knows?

I guess I got caught at the right time :P. Anyways I haven’t seen the price change in any retailers as of yet.
